Ever since I was young I have been very good with children. My first babysitting job was when I was 8 or 9, babysitting a 3-year-old at the town pool for the summer. Since then I have taken care of numerous children in various settings ranging in ages newborn to elementary school aged. My many years of experience have taught me a lot about caring for children. I have learned that children need to be provided with a safe, happy, caring and fun environment in order to grow and develop well. My strengths that help me take care of children include a life-long love of children, extreme patience and understanding the needs and wants of children. I also encourage children to be kind to others, share well, and be happy. I believe it is important to begin instilling positive behavior in children from a young age to help them gain valuable life-long lessons that can be used growing up through adulthood. Starting to build lessons such as taking directions, being patient and polite are vital to becoming a normal functioning adult. Past childcare experiences that stand out to me are my four years spent having a steady nanny/babysitting job for my neighbors currently aged 8 and 4 and my summer at the Daycare. Spending so much time with my neighbor has taught me a lot and I have become an important person in her life. I have seen her through the infant and toddler stages and have learned a great deal from my interaction with her. It has been an enjoyable four years seeing her grow up and respond to my care and guidance. Working at the Daycare was my first big experience dealing with young babies and toddlers in a classroom setting instead of one-on-one care.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Springfield, NJ

Before beginning the search for a babysitter, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a babysitter is the right choice for your child care needs. There are lots of benefits to hiring a babysitter such as getting the flexibility of having some more time for yourself or with your partner. When hiring a babysitter, first, you should explore the differences between a nanny and a babysitter. If you’re looking for occasional child care, babysitters are the right choice for you, but if you’re looking for more frequent care, a nanny may be better for your needs.

From there, you can think about what you expect your babysitter to handle so that you can create a profile for nannies to reach out to you. The boundaries for babysitters’ duties can vary from family to family. However, in general, a babysitter is responsible for making sure your kids’ needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example to housekeeping, laundry, or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your babysitter before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location in Springfield can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Springfield Babysitter Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective babysitters, the next step is to conduct an interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some babysitter interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a babysitter?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open and comfortable doing?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in New Jersey?
  • Do you have a New Jersey driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a babysitter that you’re considering hiring, make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your babysitter. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around babysitter responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!

And of course, as you learn how to hire a babysitter, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
